Whether it’s a higher salary, much-deserved promotion, or more help at home, women find it hard to ask for what they want and refrain from negotiating even when they know that negotiation is necessary to get what they deserve. They pay for this reluctance in every aspect of their lives—in lost income, slower career progress, barred access to leadership roles at work, and health risks at home. Led by Sara Laschever, co-author of the groundbreaking Women Don’t Ask, this session will guide you through the process of becoming a more confident, savvy, and successful negotiator. Walk away feeling inspired and empowered to ask for what you want in ways that feel comfortable and work best for women.
Speaker: Sara Laschever, leading authority on women and work and co-author, Women Don’t Ask and Ask for It!
